   You can't tempt me if...the day

Repeat same verse pattern with these lyrics.

The pull on my flesh was just too strong
It stifled the choice and the air in my lungs
Better not to breathe than to breathe a lie
Cause when I open my body I breathe alive

D|--0------0-------0------0------0------------|x2
A|--0------0-------0------0------0------------|
D|--8------10------5------3------2------------|

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

F|--9----11---12---11-------9---11---5---4---7---4----2--4--5--2--0|
D|--0----0----0----0--------0---0----0---0---0---0----0--0--0--0--0|
